The worst jazz band teacher ever!! Even though he was extreme i like how it made me question what is going to far when reaching perfection? This movie also had some great insults.

Wow. I realised I was holding my breath whilst watching this film. Beautifully shot and edited with great suspense and a perfect tempo (pun intended). Similar vibe to Black Swan exploring themes of obsession and competition but I felt this film really had the perfect amount of twists and turns. Captivating.

Spoiler Alert 🚨 That drum solo at the end was fantastic! Sometimes great achievements can arise from great adversity.

Amazing cast, amazing direction, amazing script. This movie is a masterpiece and it was the beginning of my love story with Chazelle.

Woah! Such intense moments amazing plot and scores but the thing that stands out the most is J.K. Simmons performance. he is just next level in this movie. Definitely one of the best movies of the decade or probably of all time

One of the most engaging movies I’ve ever seen it is not a movie or watch to relax it’s very stressful and shows how perfectionism can ruin people sometimes

I watched after the hype from my friends to watch the movie Nah it's not that great for the hype The first 1 hour was going great and very intense that how he is going to impress terrence fletcher and i have to say ending was pathetic A teacher assaulting the student for a whole movie to bring out the talent in him. BRUH! Is that the drummer has to play that faster? Both miles and Simmons have done a great job in this horrible movie

Візуально-аудіально єстетична стрічка що піднімає складні питання виховання, освіти, таланту, власного місця в соціумі та оцінки своїх можливостей і амбіцій. Чудова гра акторів, що перетворює геніальну драматургію в топову стрічку. Рекомендую любителям драми та дєді-ішьюс.

I didn’t get the hype of this movie. I understood what it’s about but I just couldn’t enjoy it. J.K Simmons is a great actor but I find Miles Teller frustrating. To be honest I was glad it was over.

I really enjoyed this movie. It was such a psychological thriller for me. It is very intense and in some moments hard to watch, but it is truly a masterpiece

Wickedly insane. The acting is off the charts. JK Simmons and Teller are absolutely electric in every single scene they share. I would argue that I haven't seen two male leads dominant the screen as masterfully as they did since Amadeus. How this movie didn't win more awards? I will never know. Masterpiece. Top 10 movie of the 21st century hands down. I would've liked more character development in some of the side characters especially the father-son relationship but that is one of my few critiques. Excellent
